Pirates attack Bermudian ship near Nigeria
A Bermudian-registered tanker was attacked by pirates near Nigeria early Tuesday morning.
The Department of Marine and Ports received a report at 2.25am that day from the LNG tanker River Niger stating the vessel was under attack in the Gulf of Guinea.
A report said: “Although the pirates opened fire on the vessel, evasive action was undertaken by ship’s crew with the attack aborted and unsuccessful boarding of vessel.
“The Nigerian navy was dispatched in attempt to trace the source of the attack while the River Niger continued under escort of a security vessel, for pilot and entry into the port of Bonny, Nigeria.”
No one on board was injured in the attack.
